I prepared for my speech by first going over the assignment sheet. After I felt that I fully understood what the assignment required, I wrote down what I remembered about The Scarlet Letter. Since I didn't have time to reread the novel, I looked up the summary of the novel online to refresh my memory on events that I may have forgotten since the last time I read the book. After refreshing my memory, I thought about why I choose this book and wrote down all the things I liked about this book and about the main character, Hester. At first, the only themes I wrote about were redemption and being an outcast.
I know my first large written work will likely be my worst. We learn from jumping in and making mistakes, and I loved my story too much to make first time novel mistakes on it. I still write down ideas for it when they come to me from time to time,
Throughout the years in middle school and high school I 've had to write many essays. Every time I walked into class and on the board it said "Essay" the anxiety attacked. Writing essays was never my favorite thing to do and im pretty sure many people feel the same way. My last teacher said he liked the creativity I had in my writing the only thing missing was knowing how to writing correctly. No writer is born knowing how to write perfectly they all had to learn and that’s what I 'm doing except what they learned stuck to them.
Of course all of my stories were morbid with sinister events, but well written. (Maybe because I would spend all the time I could with her, so I would revise and revise until it was perfect- well at least for an 8th grader.) Writing My Past as a Writer was a great way to remind me why writing was alright. This paper was a little easier to write because it was my story. I had to revise it a bit and add some more background to what I was writing in the class, such as my Johnathn story (there are more of them too).
Upon opening the book, and beginning to read the first chapter, it felt as though the author was introducing me to the book as if in real life. The author spoke as if he wasn't telling the story, but instead preparing you for the story. The fact of the matter, is that he was doing both. Calvino was preparing the reader for the first story of the book by listing the best ways to read a book by removing any distractions and getting comfortable. Reading this was very hard going, as the first chapter to me it read like a set of stereo instructions and it made me think I don't need to be told the best way read a book, as the best way to read a book is all down to personal preference.
Throughout the WRD 102 class, I have had to write a lot of essays, personal narrative, response paper, evaluative review, and argument essay. Before this class, I would start to write thinking my teacher is the only one who is going to read it. However, in this class one of the things I have learned is that, in order to write a good paper, you have to choose your audience and write according to what would they argue about. My main problem was the structure of the essay. Even though I have made progress I still think I'm not where I want to be.
As I have learned, neither writing style is necessarily better than other. This is because both types of writers are actively thinking about ways to better their work, whether it is by correcting grammatical errors or creating new ideas. Needless to say, I was a devoted one-drafter, but for some of the wrong reasons. I was always convinced that my first draft was always my best work. This was mainly because I did the majority of my revising and editing while writing (as I am doing ... ... middle of paper ... ...elpful start to building my professional writing career.
Anne Lamott begins off by expressing in "Shitty First Drafts" that practically everybody composes terrible first drafts, yet they keep in touch with them so as to bring about a significant improvement drafts down the line. She even depicts the picture of the splendid writer taking a seat to compose a tremendous first draft easily, and how this picture is once in a while accurate. She says that the first draft is the "youngster's draft" where you simply get everything on paper for yourself, knowing you can set aside a few minutes. It's great to do this on the grounds that in those ramblings, something exceptional could be composed which might be utilized as a part of the following drafts. She depicts how when she was writing sustenance audits for California, the best way to finish the surveys was to first compose a shitty first draft.
I learn that book form Shakespeare you really need to understand what the author wan to said and find in the dictionary different definition for one word. Macbeth was the most difficult essay that I make in my life so far so I was happy when I return it the paper because I don’t want to deal with that anymore. I wish I had taken the substantive time to polish my essay. I feel that I have accomplished a major objective by reviewing critic writings but feel bad that I did not make use of my critic abilities so as to give the paper a much more balanced feel. In my last essay about short stories I was thought that was more essay but was little bit complicate on the realist also I chose a theme which I think made it hard to relate elements of magical realism to it directly.
Since English is my second language, I know I have a lot of mistakes with my writing. Thus, I went to the Writing Center to ask for professional help. The tutors are very nice and willing to give you academic advices. After going to the writing center, the essay turned out to be my favorite essay that I have even written. However, the assignment was not asking to tell the story, the main theme is to write what shaped you as a whole.
